Re: Double Positives (Thesis) Lead to a Negative (Antithesis): Rule of Double Positives

With apologies to Eod for omissions or inaccuracies, I can offer a much abridged version of the argument presented in opposition to mine. The following is an abbreviation of my understanding of the argument against mine. Since double negatives make a positive, it is reasonable that double positives...

You’ve covered a lot of ground most thoroughly.
Could you explain it to me in simple words? I can never understand a word that poster writes.

Re: Double Positives (Thesis) Lead to a Negative (Antithesis): Rule of Double Positives

Philosopher Sidney Morgenbesser is famous for objecting to someone saying that although a double negative implies a positive, there is no instance where a double positive implies a negative. Morgenbesser responded: "Yeah, yeah."

Re: Time As The Synthesis of Contexts and The Creation of Forms

Once, a long time ago, there was a wise Zen master. People from far and near would seek his counsel and ask for his wisdom. Many would come and ask him to teach them, enlighten them in the way of Zen. He seldom turned any away. One day an important man, a man used to command and obedience came to vi...

Re: The Simulation Argument

If it ever became possible to create virtual reality/digitise consciousness ... I must point out that you are conflating two different things. This is very common in discussions of the simulation argument. 1) We could create super duper virtual reality indistinguishable from reality. For example yo...

Re: The Simulation Argument

Its just a matter of perspective.

I will answer to your polite and constructive questions. I have a question.

God is everywhere, knows everything, can do anything. God makes...
